Making Professional Linearts Pt1 by Nai-Alei Making Professional Linearts Pt1 by Nai-Alei
Part 1 introduction: HERE
Part 2 : [link]







This took far longer that I thought it would xD The first steps are so simple but it takes longer to get it on a page :3

Anyway ^^ Because I love you all so much x3 I'm making a tutorial on how to make linearts :D
Hope you like it!


Also I'd be happy to check and give advice to anyone who would like me to look over their lineart(s) <3

Oh! and pleeease let me know if you find this useful?! :huggle:

The Enaegon is a closed species you are not permitted to make your own and you may not get a copy of the lineart by any means. Thank you <3

How do you stop the colour going out of the base when you colour it? c:

You lock the transparency ^^ most layer supporting programs can do that :)

Oh thx! Tried asking this other person and she got stuck up and never told me -3-
So when you make the watermark do you save it and set the opacity kinda low so people will still see it or leave the opacity at 100%? Also if I asked you where filters were would you answer em or get all bitchy and say look up some PS knowledge and I already know where the filter is so just wondering? :3

Chances are she is not being stuck up. This kind of stuff is extreme basics to the vast majority of artists and is seen as so obvious that most will not use their time to answer such things.
I leave it at 100, but its up to you :) it your work afterall.
I would most likely be as you say 'bitchy' xD I'm working through over 100+ messages a day and often have to answer the same thing several times over. These things can be found without asking another artists. I have work, university and my own life to juggle, as much as I would love to play teacher for every little thing, I can't and I won't x3 I taught myself these things, so can everyone else <3. If only we all had more time...

I know right, it's kinda annoying not wanting t be rude I really want to just say "It's so basic and you don't know where to find them.. Learn some basic knowledge about art programs and if you need something answered please ask something that is actually worth my time also there is a thing thats called "Google" it really helps. :3 LOLOLOL

Yeah, maybe not said as harshly as that ^^;
Being negative to other artists like that doesn't help anyone.

What are ways to actually make lines and Im using a wacom bamboo tablet touch and pen so it has sensitivity too.
I've watched a speed draw of some your things but do you just kinda trace them or something?
I'm having trouble making the lines nice and clean like yours :c

the thing I could never understand is how you got from that raw sketch (very sketchy lines) to that crisp, clean lineart. pen tool?!? what if my program doesn't have a pen tool D: will my lines just look wobbly forever? I could never understand that. :/

:iconnai-alei:
Nai-Alei Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012
I use paint tool SAI for linearts ^^ and it's the 'Ink pen' tool I use :)
I also have a Tablet for drawing, so I can get the smooth lines ^^
